. it is not government that creates jobs. this individual to create jobs. when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare.

a good job -- chris christie was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political
. >> but michael, in closing here, you think that the romney camp has done a heck of a job keeping themselves in the campaign with all that money that they've had out there? come on, now. there's no question that the country now it was going to come down to the final hours of people making a decision, so much money, so much intensity, we're a divided country. i just think that when you look at ohio, what is dogging mitt romney right now is the way he has handled this automobile industry. >> oh, no question about that. i am totally on your page on that front. i thought that was a little ham handed and really put the campaign into an awkward position to try and clean it up. >> alex, is the automobile the waterloo for mitt romney? >> absolutely. 110%. every campaign comes book to the candidate. the fact that mitt romney did what he did, wrote that op ed and then ran for president and did not think he was going to have to do any triage on that is a sign of a very flawed candidate or someone who totally under estimates the american worker. >> ed? when you're calling him president elect romney on w
the first debate was hitting romney left and right with the zingers. >> well, governor romney is right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas. >> jon: boom! >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. (cheers and applause). >> jon: bam! >> the biggest geopolitical threat facing america you said russia. not al qaeda, you said russia. and the 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back. (laughter and applause). >> jon: well, that was a little hackie. i mean that was -- that was a it will roasty. i wouldn't (bleep) your foreign policy with margaret thatcher's (bleep), come on! hickory dickory dock, your geopolitical understanding can suck my -- (laughter) sorry. that's -- no, please don't because then i'll do it again some night. (laughter) so the president had a good night. must have felt pretty confident because he was letting his professor or y'all side shine through. especially when it came to one cou
in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> romney: i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> bill: how about a little fact checking on that ad, judd? >> yeah. it is really, i think probably the most dishonest ad we've seen this campaign cycle. at least at the presidential level. >> bill: which is saying something, isn't it? >> it is saying something. is it it starts off right at the beginning when mitt romney says i have a plan to help the auto industry. and as it turns out he has no plan. there's nothing on his web site and actually reporters have followed up and they've said could you send us a copy of the plan. and there is no plan. no one's gotten anything. so i guess it is just the idea that -- saying you have a plan is more important than actually having a plan. >> bill: also when he says i have a plan for 12 million new jobs and we haven't seen the plan yet either. on the auto industry, it is kind of late after g.m. and chrysler are already back, right? already back on their feet ma
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
the job situation. i like what romney wantso do, the code has a lot of deductions that shouldn'te there, we should just lower rates and get at them. and in fixing that, if you pay 25%, and then you get deduct the mortgage or don't get to deduct the mortgage and pay 20%. if you're net-net not getting taxed any more, i don't see how that's actually going to lead to more spending and i tell you a little dangerous in the short run, the housing market is still-- and to pull out major deductions the home mortgage deduction being one of them. he didn't say he was going to do that, if it didn't do that, but makes the budget work. >> brenda: i know, the tax code is like war and peace. overhauling it, will that help get jocks. >> like you've read that. >> not immediately, but look, we've got the most sophisticated tax code in the entire world, makes us uncompetitive and the u.s. falls on a competitive basis and a lot of reason is the tax code. what it's done, it's made small businesses at a big disadvantage to big business. because what happens is big crony businesses getting their loopholes and
roosevelt. mitt romney says he will do a better job if he is elected. the republican nominee is spending the last few days of the campaign making that case in the battleground states. romney is in wisconsin and ohio today trying to pick up the few remaining undecided voters. >> and we asked them and you to look beyond the speeches and the attacks and the ads, look to the record. >> reporter: the race is tied in nine swing states. the latest polls also show the race tightening in pennsylvania, a state once thought to be easily in the president's win column. the romney campaign is making a late push to take pennsylvania. the republicans are spending three million dollars on campaign ads there and romney will visit the state on sunday. now, let's look at the markets right now. you can see that the dow is down just by 100 points. stock gave up that early gain despite a decent jobs report. that job is being attributed to traders assessing the potential costs of superstorm sandy. back to the campaign, president obama's camp is calling the gop's effort in pennsylvania an act of desperation. but
states, i think. host: let's listen to governor romney recently talking about jobs. [video clip] >> when we do those five things, this economy will. come will. we will create 12 million new jobs in four years. we will see rising take-home pay. if we will get america oppose the economy growing at 4% per year, more than double this year's rate. after all the false promises of recovery and all the waiting, we will finally see help for america's middle class. host: that was mitt romney in iowa on friday. let's hear from richard in milwaukee, wisconsin on the democratic line. caller: good morning, c-span, and good morning mr. glover. i have a question on the associated press. where do you get your polling from? at work we have 90 people and last week we took our own polling. that was in a secret ballot. everybody said that they never got calls in the last 30 days, calls from anybody. so we took our own secret ballot. obama comes out with 77 people. so that is my question. thank you. guest: well, thank you. by the way, i will be in milwaukee a couple weeks after the election. it's one of my fa
in two ways. one, the romney has got a job to do. mitt romney has nothing to do during this crisis. the president has stuff he can do. that's number one. and, second, if romney felt as if momentum was starting to take hold here and he had this opportunity to start talking about minnesota, all of that is gone for three days, at a minimum. >> something you may not have thought of, although you think of everything, i think this is going to zap some of the poison out of the race. >> i competely agree. i think the tone changes a little bit. however, biden did the youngstown event today. it was still pretty partisan and there were tough hits on romney but i do think from the two principals, the surrogates will be pretty tough but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an
that general motors and chrysler will send american jobs overseas to china. here's part of the romney ad. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> well, this is not the first time a romney ad has spread a falsehood. think of the ads that misled on romney's position on contraception, and the erroneous ad that said that president obama ended the work requirement for welfare. by the way, that ad is still running. but this time he messed with the wrong group, the auto industry himself. a general motor spokesman condemned the ad of romney, saying, "we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the united states and repatriating profits back to this country." and the ceo of chrysler sent an e-mail to all of its employees that said, "chrysler group's production plans for the jeep brand have become the focus of public debate. i feel obliged to unambigu
of other ambitious politicians is he really genuinely loves the job he has now. think of mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. he was a stepping stone. that's all he wanted out of that job. chris christie has wanted to be governor of new jersey his whole life. new jersey political culture is this very sort of quirky and insular thing. the governor is vetted with more constitutional authority there than anything else. i think he really -- there's something about the role any plays in new jersey politics now. he relishes who he is in that state, what he represents to that state. when something like this comes along, this is the ultimate test of gubernatorial leadership in new jersey. if you want to look for the more cynical interpretation, it's this, to survive in new jersey, to survive as a republican in a blue state, chris christie's strategy has been to seek out and publicize high-profile partnerships with members of the other party. cory booker, the mayor of newark, is the most prominent example of this. he's done it with a number of mayors in new jersey. he's done it with
recovery began three years ago, mitt romney said job creation is still not strong enough. >> today the businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new% jobs. this morning to learn companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> he said he would lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. we learned it is actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> romney picking up a talking point the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. a month ago to recall in a september jobs report the rate dropped unexpectedly from 8.1% to 7.8%, which was the rate the president obama had when he took office in january 2009. giving the president a talking point, given that one back. dennis: thank you very much, peter barnes. cheryl: our next guest says recovery is simply not enough anymore and the october jobs report is another reminder we are nowhere near economic expansion. the chairman joins us now. why are you so focus on the idea of expansion and not recovery? >> when you look a
's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. itre saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufacturing all over the country. >> reporter: today the lords town plant churns out the chevrolet
are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >>> i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. >> mitt romney did actually say he'd let detroit go bankrupt and he opposed the bailout and said if we did it it you could kiss the automotive industry good-bye and that didn't really work out. when they endorsed him, they said in spite of him screwing up so badly. the point where they say barack obama sold gm to italians who are going to build jooirps in china. this appears to be a spin on this ad from ohio last week. >> i saw a store today, one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep. now owned by the italians, thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america and i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair and if it's fair america will win. >> that line about jeep moving american jobs to china? moving all production to china? that is not true. chrysler is not moving its production to china. that is not at all true. that is not true. that is a lie. chrysler itself had to come out publicly and say, what mitt romney
to elect mitt romney and paul ryan to save jobs in virginia? \[applause] are you ready to get the greatest country on earth out of debt and back to work by electing mitt romney? \[applause] i thought so. well you look all dried out and recovered from the store and god blessed us by giving us a glancing blow. what great work done by our first responders and government officials around the state. we are blessed to have done so well here in virginia. \[applause] you know a month ago president obama came to virginia and said if you don't win virginia, i won't be president of the united states. will you help him keep that promise? \[applause] we love having mitt romney here. but we like having president obama and joe biden here because they say the darnedest things in virginia, don't they? >> like bind saying it's great to be here in north carolina. and president obama saying he had a business but somebody else built that. does that sound like somebody who understands free enterprise and the american dream? fortunately, we have a candidate who does. i'm glad to have followed george allen. he wa
in a very tight race. i can't even understand how he offshore is his money let alone jobs. mitt romney is on the move when voters in swing states in the close presidential race tonight in the key battleground state of ohio for the second time in 90 days the government announced the economy grew by 2 percent in the third quarter exceeding expectations. after the stimulus was passed to the white house promised that the economy would be growing at 4.3% over twice as fast. today he dismissed romney's economic failed economic policies of the past. the chicago tribune endorsed the president for the second time, the paper says that he is credited for effectively prosecuted the war on terror. i think the youth has a lot of power and we have the power to make a difference. they are really open to both sides. the kids will enjoy the opportunity banks to school teachers who picked them to participate in the program. the top democrat in the u.s. senate has been released from the hospital after being involved in a car accident he was riding in a vehicle near las vegas when his motorcade crashed in
. we're looking for more job opportunities and we see that in the romney/ryan ticket. >> do you think the youth vote will turn out in force this year, and if so, why do you think they will still be in support of barack obama? >> well, i definitely think 2008 was a watershed year once in a moment for our generation when it came to voting for obama. i think they'll turn out again because we have concerns about this country. we are optimistic about the direction, in the sense we know it has to get better from here. i think they'll turn out for obama. when he came into office, employment was at 10:00, now at 7.8%. young people are interested in issues concerning people of color, lgbt community, health care. young people now can stay on their parents plans till 26, he's stood up for -- >> what about what katie mentioned, what we hear is young people are getting out of college in many cases and can't find a job. do you think that, or don't you think the economic issue will override the other concerns or do you think it won't? >> it's not certainly like pres pass job bills in congress. certa
romney has shown he is very good at sending jobs overseas. but i have news for the governor, a president's job is different. the president's job is to create jobs in america. bring jobs home to america. keep jobs from leaving america. that is the president job. at the president said in the second debate, he said mitt romney's plans are sketchy. i did not like to correct the president but in this case, i will. they are not sketchy, they are etch-a-sketchy. they are changing the whole deal. but you cannot erase libya already done, but you have already voted for -- erase what you have already done. what you said you would support had been president. but you have already voted for. extending tax cuts for the very wealthy. a $500 billion tax cuts while cutting essential programs. cutting essential programs. turning medicare from guaranteed plan into a voucher program. which will cost seniors thousands of dollars over time. not in 19 million people off the program. -- knocking 19 million people off the problem. -- off medicare. promising another $250,000 for the top 1% which require raising ta
boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are what america needs. you've heard their closing arguments. now it's decision time. and that makes you the jury, and the jury in ohio may determine the fate of the nation for the next four years. in ohio that's where we find my good friend ali velshi, cnn's chief business correspondent and john avlon is there with him as well. you have to go back to 1960 until you find the last time the winner of ohio did not end up in the white house. unemployment rate in ohio 7%, guys, below the national average. it wa
back every job lost under his watch. that's quite a feat, but romney says not good enough. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs and more take-home pay. >> reporter: >> how is that possible, major economic growth. the economy grew at a 2% annual rate during the third quarter, better but not nearly enough to significantly boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are what america needs. you've heard their closing arguments. now it's decision time. and that makes you the jury, and the jury in ohio may determine the fate of the nation for
jobs report mean for president obama and mitt romney. >> the presidential race is just several big items on ballot in maryland. the final day for early in maryland. we are at a polling site in landover. last day of early voting in maryland. see the peopllined up .ehind you you can see this very long at this learning center. this is what people are having endure on this last day of voting. of these people got here this center opened at 8:00 in the morning. far, 1000 people have cast their ballots. statewide, records are being set .votingly 8% of eligible voters in the maryland have taken this early voting opportunity. as longhey are waiting four hours. are just try to make the best of it. >> i enjoyed it, got to meet some -- got to make some new friends. not trade experience for the world. >> i do not see much stress. i think i will get in within the which i feel great about. >> if you think this line is that, keep in mind, this is just a line that wraps around the get in the front door. get in the front door, there are more lines inside. supposed to be early voting today, but becau
outlets are calling mitt romney's latest ads, suggesting auto jobs are being sent to china. gm calls romney's ads politics at its cynical worst. >> what you have there are the two latest ads. as you know, tv is only part of this those days. if you turned on your radio lately, you have noticed a onslaught aimed for and against president obama and mitt romney. >> romney as a millionaire who uses loopholes to pay a lower tax rate than nurses and police. romney's plan makes midel class families pay more. $2,000 a year while giving multimillionaires a tax cut. >> and what would you do now if you were barack obama? you would attack with ads spice and what some call unfair and untrue. ads that are, quote, blowing smoke, go too far and supported my more evidence. >> reporter: so they go back and forth and forth and back. the question here is are any voters listening anymore? even though many have made up their minds, they're growing tired of ads from both sides of the race. >> if i sigh see it and hear it, i will turn it off and go on with my day. >> i turn them down. i have gotten to the po
but supporting romney. paul otillini. he critized the president for not doing more to create jobs and a stimulus plan. the president's job's council hasn't met since january. >> eric: hits keep coming on lance armstrong. if he doped in the 2000 olympicses in sydney where he won the bronze. they will have to look at whether the eight year oat statue revision applies to lance armstrong or not. he was stripped of his 7 tour de frances. and the doping agency said he particular part in the most sophisticated scandal that cycling had ever seen. >> eric: hundai in trouble for overstating the gas mileage. many models were rocked with the wrong fuel economy figures. the automakers have to change it and may out millions to 900,000 car owners. no word on if they will be fined or if a criminal investigation is underway. gretch. >> gretchen: so much for the doggie in the window. banning pet shops banned from selling pets from breeders. the measure will save the lives and shop owners say it is unfair and will risk their livelihood. la is the only one with this ban. >> eric: there is a lot of shelter dogs that
a little bit. so mitt romney can talk about how unemployment has ticked up. you saw job growth a little stronger than anticipated. so the president can say, you know what, this is a sustained recovery. it's not fast enough. but it's not -- that's just what you heard from the president in the campaign speech you just played a little bit of before because he talks about the fact that since he's been president he's created nearly 5.5 million jobs. so it really hasn't changed the calculation one way or another. by the way, wolf, in a lot of these states including the one john king is in, ohio, there's been a lot of early voting. so it's too late anyway. >> the economy has issued -- number one, i want to alert our viewers, janet napolitano has been in staten island touring that devastated area. here she is right now. let's listen in. >> we know that staten island took a particularly hard hit from sandy. and so we want to make sure that the right resources are brought here as quickly as possible to help this community which is so very strong recover even more quickly. just to give you a sense
